  1. Thank you R Babad.

    Thanks to your expertise in directing us to the best Dr. and therapist for the specific needs of the condition we faced, We are a happy functioning family K”NH.

    Your concern, knowledge and soft approach was extremely appreciated.

  2. Avi is a true “hazne’a leches”. He does a lot for the “klall” in a extreme quiet way. His qualities and zidkus is visible not only by his deeds but also by all his yiddishe employees. I know personally of many hires in his company that are pure chessed. I have a friend that works for Avi and I asked him how is it going and he replied to me “it is an absolute privilege to work for him”. Also Central court shul is only in existence due to Avi.
    It’s good to see that we have such generous and kind yungelite in our town!
    His support to relief is heart warming; one of the most devastating problem our community faces today with our kids are addiction – being cellphones, alcohol, drugs, medication or others. It’s not the organization that will yield big kovod and publicity on a building etc but nevertheless extremely crucial. It shows again how much Avi and his family care about our real issues that pertain quietly and loudly in so many of our homes.
    Thank you Avi and keep up your great work. May this be a tremendous zchus to you and your family.

  3. I think Relief does amazing work, but was wondering if anyone knows if there are any organization out there that helps FUND therapy? I personally know many people who desperately need help, but can not afford the extremely high cost associated with getting help.
